Hello, given is a triangle ABC. A circle with center D is tangent to BC, AB and AC at points that lie outside the given triangle. Show that AD passes through the circumcircle of triangle BCD. I have no idea how to attempt this. Thanks for help.

The wording "through the circumcircle" should have been "through the circumcentre". The circumcircle of triangle BCD passes through the incentre, I, of triangle ABC, has ID as a diameter, and the midpoint of ID as its centre, which therefore lies on AD.
